I get inordinately excited about Christmas. And I don't think it's about the presents. They're nice and all, but I really think that I get excited because I get to see people open things that I've really spent time on, and thought about how they would like it, or use it.
That, and hanging out with friends and family.
We had some rent-a-grandkids at the pre-Christmas shindig last weekend and you know what? I cannot wait until I have some of my own little munchkins to share the Christmas joy with! It made such a difference.
